Have you ever wondered if you need a specific major or requirement to attend law school? There are a couple of requirements you need to know before considering in becoming a lawyer. Contact Malloy Law Offices, LLC today!
August going into September is the time most students start school. Whether it’s high school, elementary, undergraduate, or even law school. Many people consider whether or not they can go to law school. One of the reasons is because of the misconception of having to graduate with a specific type of degree like political science or philosophy. Anyone considering going to law school should know that you need an undergraduate degree but there are no requirements on which degree you must have.
Sure, certain focuses may help you understand law, how to present a case and the logical reasoning behind precedence but law school has a diverse group of students who studied in many different fields. Along with having an undergrad degree, another requirement is to pass the LSAT. LSAT stands for Law School Admission Test and is used to examine your analytical reasoning, logical reasoning, reading comprehension and writing skills. Anyone can take the exam no matter what their background is.
Law schools will use the LSAT scores and your undergrad degree to admit those who are qualified. So, if you’re ever thinking about studying law coming from me as a managing partner of my own law firm, I would recommend completing your undergraduate degree; any focus that you are hoping to complete. Then study for and complete the LSAT. Afterwards, find the best school that has your area of law interest for you and just apply. The pay off can be great but you’ll never know unless you try.
